Backup Your Database!

May 14, 2007 at 4:39 am 5 comments

It is imperative that you backup any data that you have online.

If you have an online bookstore using a database and you’re not backing up daily, you are running a serious risk of losing some your business’ valuable assets.

While your inventory can be rebuilt, what would you do if you lost your customer database? Especially when simple utilities exist that will allow you to automatically receive an email, or have your database FTP’d,  so you can store your critical business assets offline.

If you use a MySQL Database, here are the instructions on how to use an extremely easy, simple and free solution

If you know of other utilities for other databases, please let me know and I will include them here. I think it is very important to maintain backups at all times.

    We use Veritas (Symantec) Backup Exec for all of our backups. While its not free, it the easiest way I have found to get error free backups with minimal hassle.

    Here’s a link to some of the different versions.
